MCT 12 Days of Christmas- Day 4!

Hi, I hope everyone is enjoying your weekend! If you arrived here from LeAnne's blog then you are in the right place! If not, head over to Emma's blog to start the hop and to see the project she is dazzling us all with today! Of course she will also show you what today's GIVEAWAY is and I'm talking seriously awesome stuff peeps-- so be sure to comment on every team members blog for your chance to win today!!!

Moving along to day 4 of My Creative Time's 12 days of Christmas:  
Altered Tin Pails
I found my mini white pails in the wedding section at my local dollar store, they come 3 to a pack for a buck and I am thinking I need to return and pick up like a whole bunch more of these! They are just so fast and simple to decorate and customize for so many occasions, in this case Christmas--hoorayyy for Christmas!! :)
* The tiny Christmas tree and title "Happy Holidays" are a couple of the many wonderful images and sentiments you'll find in MCT's All Around Christmas set.
* Tissue paper stamped in certainly celery (SU!) with the polka dots stamp from MCT's Build A Banner set.
* I punched a hole in either side of the oval titles and strung narrow white satin ribbon through and around the pails, then tied to the front side.  Also, I adorned each with a small green heart brad and sponged certainly celery around the oval for some depth. I added styrofoam glitter stars to the handles, but think of the possibilites for handle decor: ribbons, hollyberries, flowers, tags, chipboard shapes, more stamped images, charms etc.........
* Fill your pail with: any small treat, a small gift like a piece of jewerly, lipgloss, or for a crafty friend, a small bag of embellishments like buttons, bling, etc!  Of course you could always just put some cold hard CA$H in them too!!! However, hershey kisses are cheaper soooo mine are filled with chocolate instead of money haha!

***12 Days of Christmas Give Away Alert***
